There’s a reason that dogs are man’s best friend. They are incredibly loyal, love unconditionally and are always there for a snuggle when you need it. And, as a dog parent, it’s only natural you want to spoil them with all the good things life has to offer. Third Coast Canine knows this, which is why they have created special and well-made items just for the special pups in our lives. See the heart behind the company and what you can expect to see from Third Coast Canine soon.

Beauty, thoughtfulness and function could be a few words used to describe Mojo Owl. As she says below, “It requires some meditation to get all the right materials together.

See what got her started in jewelry making as well as where her taste in music comes from.
Fun and fashionable; two words I think of when it comes to our Collectiv artist Purple & Lime. Owner and maker Rebecca designs acrylic jewelry and felt pieces that truly make a statement.
